Dark Harbor House
Tom DeMarco

Down East Books, 2000

Author Tom DeMarco starts with a simple little love story, weaves in tantalizing details of the old mansion's not totally respectable history, and adds a hint of gentle satire to create a novel ...
  
  











  



  
The Big Click: March 2014 (Issue 13), ..., 2014

Being a litterbug could save your life! ...

Lieutenant America and Miss Apple Pie
Tom DeMarco

Down East Books, 2002

These stories poke fun at college professors and religion, examine the complex mathematics of finding both love and the proverbial needle in a haystack, and deftly probe the boundary between imagination and reality. From a dying man who makes a blanket for himself from his favorite books to a young boy who discovers love in the unlikeliest form, the characters come wonderfully to life.
